I hear the words Viet Nam
every four years or so
and just once I'd like to hear someone say
that he just didn't want to go
some fought and died
others stayed and lied
some pretend to cry
on election day

I tried like hell to stay away
but I didn't know anyone
I was 19 and even better....unemployed
perfect to carry a gun
I shot to kill
the other man's will
I think about it still
on election day

a lie can turn like a witness
anything to save itself
I pawned my medals long ago
to put food on my shelf

They showed me Viet Nam on a map
I didn't know where it was
so it stands to reason that I don't much care
what a vietnamese soldier does
national guard
or harvard yard
another honorable discharge
on election day

a lie can turn like a witness
anything to save itself
I pawned my medals long ago
to put food on my shelf

I hear the words Viet Nam
every four years or so
and just once I'd like to hear someone say
that he just didn't want to go
some fought and died
others stayed and lied
some pretend to cry
on election day
national guard
or harvard yard
another honorable discharge
on election day
